In AB3 we will be developing the skills and vocabulary necessary for effective body reading and for the ability to relate the findings in a non ambiguous fashion. These body reading skills will be combined with other objective screening and assessment protocols to quickly and clearly demonstrate exactly what is happening in our client’s support systems, both statically and dynamically. Equipped with this information we will then be in the position to relocate our client’s bodies in a better place, one that optimizes their postural support strategy and energy efficiency.

These assessments will serve to develop effective Adaptive Bodywork corrective strategies that initially target the client’s weakest link. Using an iterative algorithm that employs correctives and retesting, we will progressively develop functional movement behaviors that are both healthy and sustainable.

This 2 day workshop will continue where we left of In AB1. We will be diving in deep with advanced techniques to address core limitations, the deep front line and the head and neck. AB3 will also focus on integration of the body in gravity.

This work will serve to reintroduce us to the fundamental neuro-developmental sequence that serves as the basis for all effective human locomotion. This series will help bridge the gap between the structural/bio-mechanical work accomplished over the weekend and the neural component needed to eventually re-pattern the new movement behaviors at a reflexive level.

Having addressed Movement with it’s mobility-stability components we will conclude by putting you on the development path you need to be on to help sustain function and health. relieving pain, increasing mobility, & functional range of motion

Lifetime athlete:
My passion for performance and efficient movement comes from a life of sports and sport competition which includes; road cycling and cross country skiing, Tae Kwon Do, Squash, Downhill skiing: Giant Slalom and Slalom, Track cycling as well as the participation in multiple equestrian adventures around the world.

Lifetime student:
Applied Health sciences, metabolic fitness, cellular health, physiology, Functional Movement and nutritional studies; including Ancestral, Paleo, Low Carb, Ketogenic, reduced feeding window, and fasting are all central to my strategies for optimizing health, performance, longevity and general wellbeing.

Empowering people with the knowledge and tools necessary to take back ownership of their health, and to optimize their functional movement, while enjoying an extended pain-free health-span.

Getting Started:
Building a better foundation. Whether you are a circus performer, a gymnast, a yoga practitioner, an Olympic lifter, a X-Fit athlete, or any form of athlete engaged in the rigours of intense training and sports specialization, it is important to understand the consequences that injury to an athlete’s connective tissue support system will have on their potential for coordinated, pain free proprioceptively aware movement. When a structural dysfunction resulting from an injury like a fall or a strong impact with an external body or a wrong move is not recognized, its impact on the body will have life long repercussions. This dysfunction to the athlete’s support system will continue to interact negatively with all future athletic movements, creating a series of performance limiting compensations that will ultimately compromise the athlete’s likelihood for success. It is a priority to screen/assess the client for dysfunction/asymmetries and then rapidly restore balance in the athlete’s support system to avoid further structural dysfunction, dysfunction that will be exacerbated through the continued efforts of training and competition.
